Jacobson Chief

Recommended Posts

I've got a line on a Jacobson Chief tractor. Looks to be mid to late 60's model. Non running,has a mower deck,and I believe a snowblower. Before I make the investment,is there much interest in these tractors,as complete working tractors,or for parts? It looks like a heavy built tractor. Any websites with info on these? Thanks!:D

Jacobson made the Ford tractor for awhile and there is a yahoo group devoted to both the Jacobson and Ford tractors. Wish I had kept the web address for the group, but I did not. Sorry! :(I just parted out an old Ford 145 and had no problems selling the parts over eBay. Dan

Goatfarmer..... I have a Jacobsen Super Chief , about the same vintage as the one you are looking at. Real well built strong tractor, but.... tried to sell it several times. Nobody seems to want them. I think it's because they are some what uncommon, and a lot of people don't know much about them.(?) I have seen , (and bid) on parts for it on e-bay, but have also followed auctions where a complete tractor was being offered. It either sold very low, or not at all. Don't mean to sound negative , but that's my experiance with those. Dan is right about jacobsen building the Fords. I may be mistaken, but I think they also built one for Oliver . Dave

In addition to their own name, Jacobsen built for Cockshutt, Ford, Minneapolis-Moline and Oliver. The Cockshutt, Minneapolis-Moline and Oliver models have become highly prized collector's items. Pat

I had a Jacobsen Chief 1000, about a 1969 model, with a hydro lift and 36 inch deck (locked up). The engine ran so-so, and it needed paint due to a prior engine fire. It did seem to be a solid tractor, for sure. I sold it for $300. I'm sure the hydro lift sold it for me.

I've decided against it. The tractor is in my sister in law's garage,where it's been residing about 10 years. But it belongs to her brother,my brother in law.He's the kind of guy who expect's to make a huge profit from everything. So it will probably stay there forever. Thanks for the help!8)

Does anyone know the web address that howlanddm is talking about. A friend of mine (who has given me untold amounts of B.S. about having too many tractors) asked me if I could find out some information for him. Just in case you guys may know: The electric clutch that runs his pto (front) is froze. Needs advice about getting another and any tips about taking the old one off. He's heard you could do some damage to the motor.
